This year Ozzfest was going to be free and also find some of the most brutal of the Metal bands around as a part of it. Getting the ticket was easy if you followed some details and the capacity crowd affair found Ozzy taking the stage with the likes of Lamb Of God, Static X, Lordi, Black Tide, Hatebreed, Behemoth, Devildriver, In This Moment, Nile, and Chthonic as the Metal lead offs. Our travel to the show caused us some delays and hence missing a few acts but we were there to bring you the scoop so to see more just click the logo to go to our article on the main PiercingMetal.com site. It was an incredible day of Metal under the blistering heat of the summer sun.

It seemed as though In Flames was on a new ride to success in the Metal scene with their latest album “Come Clarity”. One could not fault the listeners for grabbing hold for dear life with this one since it was such a solid album. With this in mind the show at Webster Hall was something many were looking forward to and the band would bring along both Trivium and Devildriver as their support.

The Sounds Of The Underground gig was going to be a doozy because it was a Festival styled event that brought together eighteen bands on a single stage out in Sayreville, NJ. While being held at the Starland Ballroom venue, the actual show would take place out in the parking lot on the asphalt blacktop and since we were in the middle of Summer, it was a sweltering day with temperatures upwards of 98 degrees with no shade to speak of. I braved this show with my buddy Pete Pardo from the Sea Of Tranquility website and gave heaviest focus to the later performing bands.
